Juz 23
Will he whose breast has been opened up to peace (not be) in luminescence from his Lord? Alas for those whose hearts have been hardened to God's remembrance! They wander (astray) in clear error. (22) Allah has sent down the best statement: a consistent Book wherein is reiteration. The skins shiver therefrom of those who fear their Lord; then their skins and their hearts relax at the remembrance of Allah. That is the guidance of Allah by which He guides whom He wills. And one whom Allah leaves astray - for him there is no guide. (23) How woeful is the plight of him who has nothing except his face to shield him from severe chastisement on the Day of Resurrection? Such evil-doers shall be told: “Taste now the consequence of your deeds.” (24) Those who lived before them had also rejected Our revelations. Thus, the torment struck them and they did not even realize where it came from. (25) God made them suffer humiliation in this life. Would that they knew that the torment for them in the next life will be even greater. (26) We have given all kinds of examples for the human being in this Quran so that perhaps he may take heed. (27) [It is] an Arabic Qur'an, without any deviance that they might become righteous. (28) [To this end,] God sets forth a parable: A man who has for his masters several partners, [all of them] at variance with one another, and a man depending wholly on one person: can these two be deemed equal as regards their condition? [Nay,] all praise is due to God [alone]: but most of them do not understand this. (29) Lo! thou wilt die, and lo! they will die; (30) Then, on the Day of Resurrection, you will be disputing before your Lord. (31)
